Patient-centered engagement applications extend Bioclinica's eHealth platform
BioClinica®, Inc., a specialty clinical trials technology and services provider today announced that Medelinked has joined its eHealth App xChange™, an alliance channel for disruptive technology innovation across life sciences and healthcare. Medelinked's electronic patient health record will be offered as part of BioClinica's transformative eHealth Cloud™ solutions.
"Medelinked applications are changing the way patients and the healthcare industry connect and interact, and we are bringing this innovation to clinical trials," said BioClinica Global Product Development Senior Vice President Andrew Masters. Apps can be used to seamlessly stream self-reported health information, as well as data from leading fitness and wellness trackers and apps for a comprehensive health profile. Masters explained, "Individuals can readily share their online health profile with their trusted network, creating new care pathways for patients. Also a new speak-to-a-physician app can be invaluable in clinical research."
"Integrating an online health platform that empowers healthcare engagement and management while enhancing the utility of eClinical systems without adding costs is a game-changer," Masters said. Apps like these allow BioClinica to pull additional sources of data into BioClinica's Express electronic data capture system. "By enabling integrated solutions to be built on our open eHealth platform, we are helping sponsors and their CROs to deliver on their digital health strategies."
"This is the first real-world integration of our technology within clinical trials, and we are excited about the innovation it brings," said Medelinked founder and CEO Ian Gallifant. "Making our application available as part of the BioClinica platform proves the value of our patient-centered model."
"We are pleased to welcome Medelinked as the first in a series of new partners to be announced," Masters said.
